OH THAT SUBJECT AGAIN

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with People first then business! Ran Right Realty Riverside, Ca BRE LIC #636943

I often come across posts for the same subject here on ActiveRain. With tens of thousands of agents sharing, it is most likely that this will happen more often than not. What I do find odd is people comments stating they already done this post or read someone else and at the same time failing to appreciate the post in question

I CAN RELATE

People write about their experiences and often those situations is what we all have in common. Take seller pricing for instance. Who hasn't met a seller who is not sure about their pricing or being unrealistic as well. But we do well to remind each other that while everything is similar, no two transactions are the same. Thus, I like hearing about it

THIS IS THEIR EXPERIENCE

I want to hear about this persons experience, their area and the outcome. Leaving a remark stating this has been done or someone else already posted this is not in support of the person or the post.

THE NEWBIES DO IT ALL THE TIME

Newbies have a tendency to blog about many things the veterans have been there and done that but it is their first time out. How would they know the subject has been tossed around recently or otherwise? They are just contributing and trying to find their footing. They chose a subject and posted it as they should

ONE THING LEADS TO ANOTHER

Everything is connected in one way or another. I often read something of interest that causes me ponder one of my old or current deals and sometimes it brings a post for me to share. This dynamic can be under appreciated

POST APPRECIATION

Each post deserves its own recognition...it's day in the sun

I agree; it's the same as attending a board or group meeting: sometimes, you need to observe before you speak!

Richie- I really appreciate you putting this into words. As a newbie I really like when I get comments but sometimes they seem to be a little condescending as if "You should know that if you had read the post by _ _ _ _ written the other day." By positive is the word.

I've never gotten one of those "Blah - Blah - Blah" comments but if and when I do I'll just "Blah" them back!

Have a happy day Richie!

Richie, had to laugh while reading, as many times reading members only posts with agents stating things they can only share with us --- we have experienced them too, but better to hear this from others!

Richie~what good does it do anyone to be negative in leaving a comment, right?  And your point about Newbies trying to find their way is spot on. I have had my own Newbie Aha moments, as ALL humans do....it's the journey of life. If we were all doing something completely different from each and every one of us, how in the world would we ever be able to relate to one another?
